for hemispheric u.s. david, you mentioned in the election that romney lost and we keep the strategy of footprint and europe would like to see what leadership. the reason i see most of the countries would seek greater involvement of the u.s., not all us paula mentioned. i wonder, a lot of reasons as you mentioned, david, the people in the united states are ready to take on that role. economic reasons from afghanistan and iraq are tired of it. the u.s. taking less of a leadership role that one day will the back and regret it is custom to the u.s. that meeting. >> and there was one over here. yes. >> thank you. -- >> name and affiliation, please. >> my name is my name is umbrella salÉ from afghanistan. immediately i have a small comment followed by a question. immediately after 9/11, the new normal west to kill and capture al qaeda taliban, bring them to justice, deny the space for militant extremism. it started as a project with light footprint as the war protect data and escalated, you increased your troops for the hope to push the taliban and defeat al qaeda. now we are talking back to the foot
they would get an idea of how you wanted them to vote. there were a lot of employers who did that. but romney encouraged employers to do that. in terms of citizens united, first of all, going all the way back to huxley versus valeo, i will never agree with the proposition that money is speech. speech is speech. it's like what matt romney said. corporations are people. no, corporations are corporations in speech is speech. money is not speech and money is intended as a corruption of the political process. >> let's give a hand to david bositis. [applause] we thank you again for coming out to the presentation. we will continue to analyze the election and i encourage you to go to her website, joint center.org and look at our website on this topic and other topics. again, we thank you for being here today and invites you back to our next event. thank you very much. [applause] >> i need some help over here. >> did he try to get up without anybody knowing? >> aegis rolled himself up. >> he was issued 20 minutes. -- [inaudible] >> that is ridiculous. he could stop reading if you took too much narcot
of his going to narrow. however, white women voted for mitt romney. when you broke down and women devoted other race, it is just sending. unmarried women made up 22% of the electorate. but they voted 70% to 30% democratic. one of color, latina women, black women that this is how barack obama won the presidency in races were decided. white women were not on that side of the vote. i would say that what i hear often, and this comes to issues of getting more women to run and more women of color to run is everybody will tell you it's a pipeline problem. if there's too many bylines from women or women of color in the media, everybody says women never pitch. and so that's something you hear. for me, one of the stars of this political event was nina turner and ohio. as you'll see in television doing incredible work on voter suppression staff in ohio. she was not up for election, but she was a star and is everybody talks about the other person that the person was nailed for, a republican black woman who just barely lost to elect for a moment like she was going to win her house seat. this is a prob
interesting numbers to me, maybe not surprising in the polls, was the president obama defeated governor romney among self-described moderates by 15 points. so this is an expression. and he asked a lot of complications complicated questions about who are they. a lot of people would say that president obama is centerleft. but it's all compared to. compared to governor romney, and i think really the republican party, including the statements that todd akin and richard murdoch made, it seemed like they were are off from the center. as an independent, i can give advice to both parties. >> ronald reagan and jack kemp -- the party of upward mobility, that didn't seem to be the republican party this year. now, maybe it was because of this very effective attack campaign against mitt romney and bain capital and 47% of all that stuff. but i think hispanics and asians -- and a lot of women, they didn't vote for the republican party not just if you are hispanic because you think their anti-immigrant, but because it doesn't seem like the kind of party that will create a country in which you are were going t
. >> the staff said one thing, but i live in boston, and there were romney headquarters, and my gut was something things. i didn't have a concession speech, unlike mitt romney, prepared for this event, as we thought through what this would be like depending on the scenario. i had a few reflections on election night. the first was remembering what it felt like in 2004 where you had a dozen constitutional amendments passed in states all across the country. you had the new republican electoral majority, and you had a president who is reelected not because of, but within the toolkit of the issues, a dark moment, this position for the lgbt movement. i would like to say how proud i am about our resilience. we picked ourselves. we decided to fight and start talking to republicans. we decided to demand more from our democratic friends. a lot of movements that have stayed down and then victims for the next decade. like some people predicted. the sense of pride in our resilience and strength, the second reflection is that on election night in 2008, i had spent time at that campaign headquarters for todd ak
the right for wanting to spend on the military print mitt romney has proposed that we spend $2 trillion in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rat
or the romney plan, because independent analysis will tell you this plan was supported by congressman berg does two things. it lowers taxes for the very wealthiest among us and increases taxes for the middle class. that is true if you want to make the system revenue-neutral. in the individual in tax, the big items are mortgage interest deductions. would never eliminate mortgage interest induction. jirga protection, child credits but what their plan does is it takes away the alternative minimum tax which has an equalizing effect for the very wealthy. that is wrongheaded. i want to spend a little time talking about corporate tax because tax loophole i would close is the one that allows you to ship jobs overseas and get a tax benefit for doing it. we need to agree that the tax amnesty program that brings that money back with the condition that it be reinvested in american jobs, we can fix this but if we go with another short-term extension, we will avoid the tough work and we will once again kick the can down the road and do what we don't need to do in this country which is not solve the problem.
for president in the 21st century. both bush, mccain and romney, none of them took the position. said that simply says those in the tea party and far right are in the tea party and the far right and have not infiltrated to mainstream thinking even in the republican party. >> that goes back to what mr. marc fauntroy said in termsf investment and not just focus on it as spending. >> i just want to pick up on janet's point with regard to speaker boehner. he may well be the most important person in all these conversations. the huskies to get that to a team. we talk about these broad bipartisan approaches. the reality is we went through this with the affordable care act. so over the course -- [inaudible] >> its members. it's not. we know going back from that newt gingrich became speaker come in the house is generally run like this. no bill they can't get a majority of the maturity will see the floor of the house. now if speaker boehner decided that i don't have the majority of my own caucus, but i have a critical enough mass to put a pill in place that will settle this to get us to move on
of massachusetts had a weak consent agreement it was under governor romney's administration. here now, here is deval patrick and under president obama, let's put partisanship aside. let's make sure you have the authority and the resources to do the job. we want eugene the job because we ought to be mindful of the comments that ms. lovelace made and all the other people waiting to see if they are going to die from this contaminated drug. we don't want excuses but we don't want to leave this law on big u.s. because you are always sued if you act and if you assume you have the authority when you don't your call before the committee to save how could you have authority when congress didn't give it to you? i think we have to put our partisanship aside, the election is over, figure out a clear law for the federal government to be able to act because with all due respect, this is not a state issue of drugs being shipped around the country. thank you mr. chairman. >> sure and i will be the first of recognized the chairman of the fda. >> you might not want that job. >> the dr. burgess you are recog
awakening means that iran is going to leave syria. choice candidate romney says, evidently without looking at a map, iran soulmate outlet to the sea. this reflects how it is american elites, not those sitting in tehran who are in denial about basic clinical trends in the middle east, let alone basic geography. while the islamic republic does not believe that serious bashar al-assad will be overthrown returned experience, the key point is that even a post assad government would not be pro-american or pro-israeli and may even be less keen on keeping the border with israel quiet. and unless they posed assad government were taliban like on a serious foreign policy with be just fine for the islamic republic. even more significantly, americans have a hard time coming to terms with the fact that today iran's most important arab ally is not area. it's ironic, the first shia arabs fled state in history. it's iraq, but we never mention not. the united states cannot come to terms with the fact that today for the first time, one of america's key regional pillars, each of them play strategically. it do
to the election every outlet came up with a short list of the cabinet for mitt romney come in for president obama. when you talk about setting up this agency council how do you guard against some sort of volatility in the national energy policy from the changing administration and the policies put in place by one administration carried over the success reforms. >> one person has to take the recommendations seriously and consider that this has merit as the president in the issues i had the the president gave significance and this could be very significant move by the administration is taken seriously by everybody in the government and that in itself was a tremendous incentive to coordination. >> there will also be volatility in a second term there will be changes that have been there for four years or ready to get out but also this isn't something that would be done instantaneously i don't think it would be done under our proposal until the end of the fourth quarter given times so that would be available to the administration i don't think it would be that big a problem although if you had the who
